SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Lacoon Mobile Security, a leading provider of advanced mobile cyber security solutions, today announced the general availability of a significant new version of the Lacoon Mobile Threat Management Platform, giving enterprises the ability to quickly and effectively manage and mitigate cyber threats posed by mobile devices and applications for both iOS and Android.

The Lacoon Mobile Threat Management Platform is a powerful SaaS solution that accurately detects advanced mobile threats, mitigates risks and assesses vulnerabilities, so that enterprises can protect corporate data and assets accessed by mobile devices. New enhancements enable seamless integration with mobile device management (MDM) and security incident and event management (SIEM) solutions, making it easier than ever to augment existing infrastructure with threat intelligence, real-time risk management, and dynamic policy enforcement.

Detect, Assess, Mitigate threats on the Device, in the Applications and in Network for iOS and Android

  • Mobile Threat Detection - The Lacoon Mobile Threat Management Platform analyzes information sent from the Lacoon mobile agent running on the device, performing both dynamic application risk assessments and behavior-based device and network anomaly detection to identify known, unknown, targeted and emerging threats.

  • Mobile Vulnerability Assessment - Assess vulnerabilities on the device, in configurations and in applications to enable effective mobile vulnerability management and risk mitigation to reduce the attack surface and meet compliance goals.

  • Mobile Risk Mitigation - Real-time defense mechanisms including adaptive mitigation and dynamic policy enforcement are triggered when established risk thresholds are reached. For example, risk can be mitigated by:
    • On device removal of the infected application or configuration.
    • Activation of a mobile VPN to block data leakage.
    • Policies for MDM and Network Access Control systems to mitigate the risk of leakage, by adapting enforcement and augmenting the security of containers and wrappers.
    • Rapid response to cross-platform Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) by providing real-time mobile threat intelligence for SIEM and incident response solutions.

Also included in the platform is a state-of-the-art web-based dashboard that provides simplified management and visibility into risk scores as well as detailed forensics on malicious and suspicious device behaviors and applications. An accompanying mobile agent, which runs non-intrusively in the background, is designed to preserve user privacy and experience by not impacting the way employees use their devices.

"Now more than ever, Enterprises are looking at mobile cyber security threats as a true risk to their organization," said Michael Shaulov, co-founder and CEO of Lacoon. "Providing protection and preventing data leakage in a way that BYOD users easily accept is critical for success. Only with Lacoon can an enterprise comprehensively detect, assess and mitigate mobile threats that are on the device, in mobile applications or in mobile traffic flowing through the network for both iOS and Android."
